You pull up to your house, use your garage door opener, and nothing happens. That's been the scene at many homes in the Springs, where garage doors aren't broken.
According to officials at Air Force Space Command, the problem stems from the radio waves used to operate many garage door openers. Some run off the same frequency used by military and emergency responder radios.
To solve the problem, you can purchase a garage door remote upgrade kit. They start out around $30, and will change the radio frequency used to open your garage door.
When shopping for a remote upgrade kit, experts say, make sure it's compatible with the garage door opener you already have.
